Horrid Henry And The Abominable Snowman by Francesca Simon

Horrid Henry and the Abominable Snowman by Francesca Simon
One of the highly acclaimed “Horrid Henry” series, this edition features the aforementioned “Abominable Snowman” as one of four short stories within the book.
Being my first experience of reading a “Horrid Henry” and with little prior knowledge, my only inkling as to what to expect was that the book was likely to centre around the goings on of a mischievous central character and his humorous misadventures.
What I discovered was four genuinely funny and enjoyable tales of Horrid Henry’s escapades of teasing his brother, “Perfect Peter”, and getting into scrapes that invariably tend back – fire.
“The Abominable Snowman” demonstrates this through Henry sabotaging his brother’s snowman by sneakily placing it on top of his own creation in order to have the biggest snowman in the neighbourhood and potentially beat off the competition, amongst whom includes Moody Margeret and Sour Susan, to claim the prize of a year’s free ice cream for the best snowman, courtesy of the local ice cream parlour.
This ends in disaster for Henry as the snowmen across the neighbourhood all melt over night. All except Perfect Peter’s which managed to stand tall after being placed at the very top of Henry’s very own creation.
The cleverly endearing alliteration of character’s names is a common theme throughout, “Stuck Up Steve” being another example.
This helped to add the likeability of the character’s, as well as the stories themselves, which all have an overriding moral to be learned and gave me clear indication as to why Francesca Simon’s “Horrid Henry” collection has been such a hit with children and parents alike.
